This is how I've got the MJ12 faction designed on the mod I'm currently working at: you're going to fear them ;)

Can't wait. :D

Now, anyway... A new version is released! Thanks to help from Falko, Hobbes and Warboy, I finally updated the terrains to work with the latest nightly. It's still rather beta, so no promises, but I think it should work.

Well, you are about 3 hours too late with the update :)
I have just recorded the first episode of my FMP LP (with version 0.9.7.1)... will be published tomorrow 05:00 CET.

But thanks for the update anyway, I thought it's definitely abandoned after a couple of months of inactivity.
Glad I was wrong.

Not a problem, you can just update the mod and the nightly and continue as normal.

Glad to hear about this playthrough, it should be informative to me and of course I am happy people play this!

Ufopaedia entry for Precise alloy shaping?

I think it probably looks too different from the game style, but I'll have a second look, thanks. :)

Dioxine will definitely be interested on this for his Piratez mod.

OK, so which nightly do you recommend?

The latest one is probably fine (probably, since I haven't extensively tested it).

The FMP should be always up-to-date with the nightly, only recently it was way late due to the extensive nightly changes and my lack of time.

After having this modpack recommended to me and playing it for a bit, I decided to map out the tech tree in Cmaptools, it's complete enough that you should be able to get most of the research-able items in the pack, though I'm aware of some missing researches and mistakes.

If you find a mistake or item that isn't in this map, send me a PM detailing what the item was and what research gave you it.

[v2 - Added missing live engineer dependent techs, added dart clip dependencies]

It looks absolutely impressive. It's not the first FMP tech map I've seen, but it's the first one I've understood. ;)

This tech tree is still subject to changes, so if you want to keep it up to date you'll probably have to make corrections.

Oh, and what exactly are the "????" parts?

For Solarious

Into FMP pack rel 9.8 there is a map named MADURBAN39 but it is not used into ruleset  :o
Terrain pack rel 3 does not contain/reference it

OK, I'll fix it, thanks.

I will update as I play new versions and read patch notes regarding research, for the most part it is easy to make changes as long as I have information about where to make them.
And the "????"s are the placeholders for relationship text in Cmaptools, given that I made this up in an hour after looking at the beginning of an Xmind version and retching I haven't deleted them or added things in to them. They do like to tangle up otherwise straight relationships though!

A possible replacement for Cerebreal? Attachment is a bit messy in colours but Xcom palette is not "myself-friendly".

Also want to ask that if I draw UFO schematics someone could make those? Somehow my MCD tools work wrong as all the loaded vanilla UFOs are a mess of walls but nothing else. Same goes for all the other things: Ufo bases, Xcom bases and crafts, terror sites... Not know what is wrong so I thought may not hurt to ask...

The sprite looks interesting. I'll try it to see how it looks in the game.

As for the MapView, you probably haven't defined the parameters properly. If you send me the files, I shall give it a try.

In UFOpedia, I can see items (from the very beginning), which I cannot purchase or research:
- Alloy Vest
- Stormtrooper Armour
- Alloy Knife
- Machette
- Dynamite
- Snub nose pistol
- Uzi
- AK-47
- Pump action shotgun
- Hunting rifle
- RPG launcher

Is that a bug or a feature?

Also, when I researched Chtonite Corpse, I was not told that I can now research Alien Biology... bug or feature?

- Machette
- Dynamite
- Snub nose pistol
- Uzi
- AK-47
- Pump action shotgun
- Hunting rifle
- RPG launcher

Those are Hybrid race weapons, you can use them (if you get to loot them) right away, no research required - so they get Ufopedia entry as "unlocked" right at the start.

- Alloy Vest
- Stormtrooper Armour
- Alloy Knife

Those are probably bugs.


By the way, seeing how FMP adapted Xops Power Armour/Stormtrooper armour and Assault Rifles, would it be possibe to incorporate Xops Mechtoids and Overlord races in the future? They even got fancy ufopedia entries with autopsies and stuff. I still havent seen their terror units though.
